Norton to be the villain in The Bourne Redundancy


On the chance you haven’t been keeping track, and who could blame you after three Bourne outings, the adrenaline fueled spy series will reboot next year with Jeremy Renner jumping through windows and suffering flashbacks at precisely the same crucial moments when Matt Damon did.

Old news, but Variety now scoops that Edward Norton is in negotiations for the villain role in The Bourne Legacy. In my opinion this would be an indescribably gargantuan step up from Ultimatum‘s Joan Allen, Supremacy‘s… Joan Allen, or Identity‘s Chris Cooper. 

Tony Gilroy has only directed two movies previously but his first was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award so hey…  that’s a start. He’s also known for having written all three previous Bourne movies.
